Cool TOMB RAIDER: The Soundtrack - First taste of TR's music in the GI podcast + Downloads

[UPDATE:]Since this thread was made there's been some advancement. I have exchanged dialogue with Dimitrijevic. He's not allowed to say anything. What has been said is this by Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director @ Crystal Dynamics:

We can only hope that the Tomb Raider Soundtrack is comercially released this time, as for the last 15 years Eidos has failed to publish music from the last eight Tomb Raider installments (or nine if you include Anniversary's score). Thankfully Square Enix is now in charge; this might change.

The music has a subtle introduction of piano and then guitar layers, purporting darker undertones. This literally and symbolically creates a distinct feel for Tomb Raider; made explicitly separate to the rest of the music of the Tomb Raider franchise which the guitar as an instrument is particularly foreign to. Most similar to music from Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, fully orchestrated strings follow which are accompanied by percussion. The instruments develop into an inverted minor derivation of the classic Tomb Raider motif composed by Nathan McCree in 1996, providing an unsettling familiarity.

¹ Note that this may not be the main theme. GameInformer merely states it is "a track from the game itself". All we know is that it consists of music from Tomb Raider. There is no additional information at this time.

A lovely and very deep piece.I can feel the darkness and lonelyness of the place, and the worry about a young lady.It's sad,but also it says "keep on".

Brilliant. Crystal always has killer soundtracks, so the fact that this is amazing isn't a surprise.

When you hear the constant sound "buurmmmm......burrmmmmm.....burrrmmmmm" I imagine Lara slipping in and out of consciousness as she is approached and dragged through the sand, then falling back into the dark depths of her mind.
